Seashells Nursery – Open Afternoon


Welcome to Herne Bay Infant School and Seashells Nursery 

This is a happy, caring and vibrant school where children are nurtured and thrive as a result. Ofsted Inspection of a good school December 2019

Ofsted Report December 2019

At our school we aim to:

Provide a happy, secure, stimulating and attractive school environment for all our pupils, that supports their emotional wellbeing and academic development.
Through high quality teaching and learning, ensure each child develops academically to match their capability, to be resourceful and become an independent thinker.
Foster mutual respect between all staff, pupils and parents as the key to good pupil behaviour. We ensure firm yet fair discipline, provide good role models and offer plenty of praise to reinforce our aims.
Support parents/carers to enable them to maximise the opportunities for their children.
Develop a co-operative approach between teachers and governors and to use the talents of each individual fully to benefit the whole school.
Be an integral part of the local community with the staff, governors, parents and others working in partnership to maintain the friendly ethos of the school.
Provide a challenging, creative, well-organised curriculum which includes all children and develops their individual strengths and talents, enabling them to become life long learners.

All staff have completed safeguarding and e-learning training developed by the National Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters (NCTPHQ), in conjunction with the College of Policing which includes guidance on how to identify people who may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism, and how to refer them into the Channel process.
